Does your gender shift around? Congrats, you’re genderfluid.
By gender, I don’t mean sometimes you like to wear pants and sometimes you like to wear skirts, or going shopping vs playing football, or being gruff and macho vs caring and gentle. I just mean sometimes you feel you’re (for example) a boy, and other times you feel you’re (for example) a girl, or other times you feel you’re (for example) some specific nonbinary identity…you can shift around between any number of points, binary or not, regular or not, at any time interval. There’s lots of variety.
It’s okay to not know, and it’s okay to be unsure, and it’s okay to think you’re genderfluid and later change your mind. It’s okay to use whatever pronouns or names you want, and dress however you want. It’s a descriptor, not a set of rules. And what it’s describing is that your gender identity—that’s your internal sense of “I am (insert gender here)”—has a habit of changing. Which can manifest in any number of ways. Some people can pinpoint their gender identity more easily than others, and some people have a stronger sense of gender identity than others. For some people the change is more dramatic than others. And people come at figuring out what exactly their (temporary or permanent) gender identity is from any number of angles, if it’s not immediately apparent.
Hope that helps.
